Thank you for visiting our site.
Patrick and I are part of the Atkins/Atkinson family of Fentress County, Tennessee. Other surnames in our family tree include Adkins, Overstreet, Norman, Key, Peters, Hall, Stephens, Kennedy, Howard, Jones, Branstetter, Letsinger, Bowden, Mullinix and Wilson. All of these branches have roots on Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau as well as in Virginia and North Carolina. We have found English, Irish, French, German and Native American ancestors.
This site and my research are works in progress. Most of the data you'll find comes from Find A Grave, which is a great resource but sometimes incomplete and inaccurate. I'll add ancestors and correct errors as I tap into new resources and time allows.
Included are known ancestors and others that may be distantly related. Hopefully, additional research will pinpoint our kinship. Last, I include families that may not be "blood" relatives, but were close neighbors and friends of my family.
I thank Patrick for his interest in our ancestors and coming along with me for drives over the beautiful Cumberland Plateau as we search out old homeplaces and burial sites. Those times are my favorite.
